While the "two guitars, bass, and drums" lineup still dominates rock & roll, British foursome the Rumble Strips take a different approach to their music with a fresh sound built around the acoustic guitar and dramatic vocal style of Charlie Waller; the soulful horn work of Henry Clark and Tom Gorbutt; and the sharp, concise drumming of Matthew Wheeler. Named for the narrow-slotted paths on the sides of highways that produce noise and vibrations when weary drivers roll over them, the Rumble Strips were formed by Waller, who grew up in the small town of Tavistock and wanted to follow the lead of his uncle, a musician who played in a rock band. While Waller developed an interest in songwriting as a teenager, things didn't move much further until he moved to London and got a degree from an art college. Dividing his time between painting and decorating, Waller found his desire to make music returning, and when he crossed paths with an old friend from Tavistock, Tom Gorbutt, the two decided to form a band. Waller and Gorbutt recruited fellow Tavistock exiles Clark and Wheeler, and the Rumble Strips were born.
